1 semesters – 1/2 credit
This course is designed to meet a twofold goal: to give students the foundations necessary to be successful in any required college government course and to prepare our students to be responsible, informed citizens. It covers the Constitution, institutions of government, civil rights/liberties and the influence of political parties/interest groups in the United States. We also take a short look at how our government compares to other governments of the world. This course is aligned with the Oklahoma Academic Standards.
